Baby makes two
Babies are one of the best gifts to the world. When new life is brought to us, we cherish that new life and we are grateful for that life. When you first find out that you are pregnant you get a wave of new emotions. There is a lot of care that you need for yourself and your new addition. The first thing that you should do once you find out that you are pregnant is see your doctor. Your doctor will check you out and conduct an ultrasound to ensure that you are in fact pregnant and then he or she will give you some information about the upcoming months, and tell you what you should be doing and what you should not be doing.
There are many things that you cannot do while you are pregnant. If you are a smoker then you will need to kick that habit as well as drinking alcohol. You do not want your actions to affect the human life growing inside of you. Drinking caffeine or taking any medications are not a good idea as well. Just think of it this way; your baby feeds on what you feed on and receives what you take in. So if you are drinking and smoking your baby is receiving all of those toxins that you are putting into your body. It is just a safe idea to be health conscious for the next nine months of your pregnancy.
Your body is about to go through some serious changes and you should try and be prepared to handle those. You will gain weight and you will get strange food cravings, but these are all natural. Talk to other women who have kids, they can give you the best insight, because they actually already went through it. Talk to them about the actual birth, and what you should expect when it actually comes time to have your baby. Talk to your doctor on a regular basis and make sure to ask any type of question that pops into your head, the more you know the less you will worry and stress, and stress is not good for you or your baby. Keep yourself informed and keep yourself happy and healthy. In nine months you will bring a new person into the world, you want them to have all ten fingers and all ten toes.
